Freehands gloves keep you warm and in touch!

As the days of November get steadily more frosty I, as a touchscreen phone user, am finding it hard to keep my hands warm and work my phone.

You all know what I mean. You have your woolly gloves on, you are rushing down the street to work, trying to text your friend on your iPhone/Samsung/HTC creation or maybe a Blackberry phone with those fiddly, teeny-tiny keys.

The next thing you know you have mispelt the whole message or even worse (like I did the other day) you have flung your precious baby onto the floor in your desperation to Swype!

This may seem like a rather small issue to be moaning about, but it it still an issue nonetheless. But I have discovered a solution thanks to a friend of mine. Freehand has a collection of gloves specifically designed to make texting, typing and Swyping a whole lot easier!

The simple design involves PVC palm dots for grip and detachable index finger and thumb tips. These tips are held back and out of the way by small magnets too – how cute!

These gloves are available for men and women in a range of colours and styles; prices start from as little as £10.16! To browse the collection visit the Freehands website!

Fashionology footwear – elevator shoes and more 3D printing

Are you too short to reach those beautiful dresses hanging on the top rail in clothes shops?  Do you want to appear taller without having to wear heels all the time? Or maybe you are tired of craning your neck to kiss your dashingly tall boyfriend?

Well now, throw that Yellow Pages in the bin, there is a solution!

SHORT++ are interactive robotic shoes that can literally elevate you to new heights! These innovative shoes, created by Adi Marom, are controlled by an iPhone app, so with the touch of a button you can be a few inches taller! To view her videos just click the image below.

They may not be the most beautiful creations, but they are a start!

My last blog post talked about 3D printing and this is going to big, you heard it here first! Students at two of Stockholm’s  most prestigious design schools have collaborated to produce the first, fully-wearable 3D printed shoes.

Naim Josefi of Beckmans and Souzan Youssouf of Konstfack, both designed and modelled the prototypes for Naim’s “Melonia” collection, shown during Stockholm Fashion Show earlier this year.

The concept is brilliant – creating artful shoes using Selective Laser Sintering.
